Generating new ideas is easy if you know the right techniques. Here are five I came up with while watching the snow fall outside the window. Those are followed by a few suggestions for creating new ideas.
For some traders, the AF motivation is so strong that they feel that not losing money is more important than wealth. Hence, they decide to pack up and stop trading all together. For others, they are constantly flipping between these two types of motivations. Some days, they feel energised and want to achieve their goals (T Motivation), so they face the market and work hard to find more trade (set ups). On other days, they struggle to pull the trigger (AF motivation).
T motivation is a great driver for achieving specific goals because it is geared towards the end result. Unlike the AF motivation, you have a direction and that’s irrelevant of where you are starting your journey.
The point of this little story is to remind the creative in you not to douse the fire, but to add another log and fan the flames of your creative genius. All creatives have a creative magic box with so many tricks wanting their turn at life. Give those creative tricks a chance. And who knows, the read new articles you’ve been looking for may actually be buried beneath the new project you just began.
An investment in books, seminars or motivational videos and CD’s should be considered. They are all good tools to help you get back on your feet. There are many of these on the market so if you are not sure which one to choose, ask your fellow business owners for their recommendations.
Celebrities. Just because someone has represented their country at sports, built a big business or climbed a mountain doesn’t mean they know how to inspire other people from stage. The top professional speakers have studied how inspiration and motivation work. Some celebrities won’t understand this.
So are inspirational videos pointless? The answer all comes down to what you do after watching them. Hopefully, you will realize that although they help, things that inspire and motivate you are just tools to help you focus. You can make the change you want in your life right now without having to wait for something or someone to come along and get you to do it. Once you understand that, you will start to spend a lot less time day dreaming and a lot more time taking action.
